Total equality

Installation, Political / Social, Textile, 90x120x30cm, 2011

The mentioned context provides everyday cases when the rhetoric for tolerance for the otherness and differences is contrasted by prejudice, stereotypes, false, fears. The installation “Total Equality” focuses on our way of socially “dressing up” in predestined uniforms of social habits, behavior and ethical dogmas.
